Documentation

Now I can't sleep, and I might as well do something productive. I'm in the middle of configuring a Linux kernel for this desknote, and documenting what I have done to get this desknote up and running as how I want it. I'm still looking for a place where I can put the document, because I don't have any access to webspace which I could call my own.

I don't know if putting it on my personal webspace in UPLB would do, but then that site experiences too much downtime. I'm feeling hesitant to put it on my free.net.ph page, because it's free, and besides I don't want to use up too much of Jijo's hard drive space. I might ask help from a few friends with some webspace to spare, or i might just as well put it up at some mailing list archived forever, which google may access for further note.

I'm thinking of lending my services to people too, charging them in the process. I discovered that I have an uncanny liking for rendering service to people in need, or at least those who need my services. I might as well charge for the installation of linux into their computers, and offer them technical support for a small "nominal" fee. Just so that it could cover my internet bill, as well as my cellphone bill. :) I might even use the money to pay my dad for the amount he lent me to be able to buy this desknote. :)

I am oozing with ideas, and the only venue I can air it is here on my blog. ;) Those in the Philippines who want to be part of this endeavor of mine, please feel free to email me. I will reply ASAP.

i have got to fix my bio clock... HELP!!

update: it seems that I can't do things right with Morphix, because there are a lot of things missing for me to do certain things -- i keep encountering dependency problems, and i guess I'm gonna need to apt-get upgrade this baby somewhere there's broadband internet. oh well, so much for the hype. but i am still going the debian way. :)

Appreciating Rizal...

Nope, this is not an academic post. More of a reflective and wrote-because-i-was-enlightened type post. Anyway, I just passed a paper on Rizal's notion of a nation according to Quibuyen (a local writer who devoted a book -- A Nation Aborted -- on his treatise on Rizal). Chapter 6 was an interesting read, and a definite eye opener. Rizal all of a sudden became interesting, especially to someone like me who could care less. It seems that most of what Rizal aims for and wrote about is still evident in today's Philippines as I see it. I wonder why I didn't get to appreciate Rizal and his work when I was still in high school -- might be the fault of the high school and the curriculum, or might be because I was still considerably immature then. I wasn't able to understand most of Rizal's writings though even if I got to reading them basically because they translated from Spanish to Filipino/Tagalog. I don't have problems with Tagalog, until you put it in writing. I

From FOMO to JOMO

Until very recently I believed that I needed to be on top of the latest news and happenings not only in my field (computer science and software engineering) but also in as many things as I can be on top of. This meant subscribing to all sorts of magazines, newsletters, YouTube channels, Twitch streamers, watching TV and live sport events, etc. — I was on top of a lot of the latest happenings, trends, news, interesting developments. I was having fun and I felt busy. What I did not feel was particularly effective nor productive. I felt like I was consuming so much information with the thought that it might be useful someday. When I was younger this wouldn’t have been an issue but I realised that ever since I’ve started taking stock of what I’ve been spending my time on, that a lot of it I’ve been spending just staying on top of things that I really didn’t need to be on top of. This article is about some of the realisations I’ve made in the course of exploring this issue of “FOMO” or

Futures and Options III: Economics, Journalism, or Computer Science

I realise it's been a year since my previous post on this blog, and I've found myself having very little time to do another "brain dump" on the subject of my early choices in life. With that in mind (and as I'll be traveling again soon) I get to think a little more and reflect on a few of the things that have happened. Much like the previous post, this one's set in high school -- where I was part of the swimming team, in a band, had been programming with Turbo Pascal, Java, and then C++ later on, and was about to make a choice that would literally change the course of my life. This one is about the choices I made, and the ones that were made for me. Note: This is part 3 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and thoughts, as well as for your reading through this series!
